The GetSegmentState method retrieves the currently playing primary segment state or the primary segment state that is playing at a given time.
HRESULT GetSegmentState( IDirectMusicSegmentState ** ppSegmentState, MUSIC_TIME mtTime );
Address of a variable that receives a pointer to the segment state. The caller is responsible for calling Release on this pointer.
Time for which the segment state is to be retrieved.
If the method succeeds, the return value is S_OK.
If it fails, the method can return one of the error values shown in the following table.
To get the currently playing segment state, pass the time returned by the IDirectMusicPerformance8::GetTime method. Because of latency, the currently playing segment state is not necessarily the one being heard.
